To create numerical models that better represent flow over complex terrain, to create new scientific knowledge, and develop better parameterizations for complex terrain processes, with broad impacts of future microscale model developments for wind energy prospecting, flow and dispersion in heterogeneous complex terrain as well as human resources development. To improve microscale models, better physics is needed which, in turn, requires detailed observations and analysis.
